Garden club fashion show to help Youth Museum landscaping

Woodcliff Garden Club is offering the community an opportunity to kick off the holiday season with an evening of refreshments, friends and fashion Nov. 14. Woodcliff’s Winter Wow will be presented at the Raleigh County Commission on Aging’s facility at 1614 S. Kanawha St.

Refreshments will be served at 6 p.m. A fashion show featuring clothing from Ivor’s Trunk of Charleston will begin at 7 p.m. Clothing, accessories and gifts will be available for purchase. There is ample free accessible parking.

Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased by calling 304-253-3806 during business hours or 304-763-4536 in the evenings or on weekends.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia. The garden club will use funds for landscaping and for updating of the outdoor performance area beside the museum.

Woodcliff’s past fund-raising efforts have supported a variety of civic beautification projects such as landscaping at the Commission on Aging, Woodrow Wilson High School, Little Beaver State Park, the Exhibition Coal Mine, Crescent Elementary School, Uptown Beckley, First Tee and the Beckley office of the American Red Cross.
